eBook Recommendation – Legally Started: tried and tested strategies to break into the legal profession

Luke Muphy eBook Cover.001I was recently pleased to help out with the design for a new eBook authored by City solicitor Luke Murphy.

It’s aimed at giving students and graduates a leg up into the legal profession.

It contains some great advice around some job search and career progression strategies you need to know.

I thoroughly recommend you grab a copy via Amazon (for less than the price of a Starbucks coffee it’s a no brainer): Legally Started: tried and tested strategies to break into the legal profession

Here’s the blurb:

Legally Started: tried and tested strategies to break into the legal profession

  • Finding it difficult to obtain legal work experience?
  • Don’t know anybody working within the legal profession?
  • Or unsure of how to utilise social media in the context of professional networking?

If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then Legally Started is the perfect book for you.

Made up of a collection of case studies, Legally Started illustrates the tried and tested strategies which aspiring lawyers have implemented to successfully kick start their legal careers.

Not only does the book provide innovative and cutting edge strategies – but it does so within a context which many aspiring lawyers will be familiar with – whether that be stuck for words at a networking event, building a rapport with an interviewer or rising above a flow of application rejections.

This motivational sidekick is a direct result of Luke’s passion for diversity and social mobility within the legal profession.
